The Antonio Conte reign begins on Thursday for Tottenham Hotspur, who welcome Vitesse to North London in the Europa Conference League.
The Lilywhites went down 1-0 to the Dutch outfit when Nuno Espirito Santo was in charge, but the doom and gloom surrounding the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium is no more, at least for now.
There is no real way of telling how Conte will set Spurs up for his first game in charge, but Bryan Gil and Ryan Sessegnon are unlikely to be involved due to hamstring injuries.
Joe Rodon, Matt Doherty and Dele Alli will all be vying for midweek opportunities under the new manager, who could elect to partner Harry Kane with Lucas Moura up top.
As for Vitesse, Wittek – the match-winner against Spurs on matchday three – is set to miss the contest with an injury he sustained in that triumph, while fellow left-back Million Manhoef‘s knee problem is likely to keep him out as well.
As a result, Yann Gboho could feature on the left after playing in the middle at the weekend, with regular lynchpin Matus Bero back from a domestic suspension this week.
Tottenham Hotspur possible starting lineup:
Gollini; Tanganga, Romero, Rodon; Doherty, Alli, Hojbjerg, Skipp, Reguilon; Kane, Lucas
Vitesse possible starting lineup:
Schubert; Doekhi, Rasmussen, Bazoer; Dasa, Bero, Tronstad, Gboho; Frederiksen, Openda; Darfalou
